Desktop Alert has received a new certificate of networthiness from the U.S. Army for the latest version of the company’s mass notification system designed to provide warning and instructions to personnel in the event of a critical situation.
Version 5 of the Total Alert System works to contact installation computer users and require them to confirm receipt of desktop alert messages that can be used for emergencies such as inclement weather, fires, active shooters and attacks, Desktop Alert said Wednesday.
The platform is designed to support the unification of inter-agency public address systems, e-mail, digital signage, telephone and text messaging into a consolidated web-based Defense Department emergency operation center interface.
Desktop Alert founder Howard Ryan said the U.S. Military Academy at West Point backed the company’s effort to obtain the CoN renewal that will aid the company’s mission to help protect leaders with technology.
Ryan added that the U.S. Coast Guard National Capital Region and U.S. Navy Post Graduate School have joined the company’s client list that includes the U.S. Air Force, Army, Army and Air National Guard Enterprise.
Desktop Alert’s technology is also included on the Defense Information Systems Agency‘s Approved Products List.
